Synopsis

Care in the community is an issue that will always cause controversy. The Key Game, produced by Talawa, may be set in a psychiatric hospital in Jamaica but the problems that it addresses are universal. It borrows themes from One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest and also Nell Dunn's Steaming and uses them to give an impression of the patients' lives and the reasons for their predicament.
